I recently purchased a new dog toy – The Bottle Buddy dog toy from Kyjen. The toy is mostly for Maya since she is younger and tends to make more trouble when she gets bored. Maya loves absolutely loves her new Bottle Buddy dog toy. It is not quite an indestructible dog toy but it has lasted a surprising long time – for Maya. She is much more interested in the crinkling sound of the plastic bottle inside than she is on chewing off the arms, ears, and eyes of the Bottle Buddy dog toy. While the Bottle Buddy dog toy is not overly expensive, it wouldn’t have been worth it if Maya had chewed it up within a couple of hours.
Maya likes her Kong dog toy (especially when there is peanut butter inside) but she gets super excited when I pull out the Bottle Buddy dog toy for play. I have to say that it is her most favorite toy EVER. It’s got the material of a plush toy (which she also loves but chews up in minutes), but it has the plastic bottle as stuffing. So no more stuffing strewn all over the floor! Plus I don’t have to worry about her chewing off plastic pieced of the bottle since the bottle is encased in the plush covering. When Maya has chewed the plastic bottle into an unrecognizable shape, the plastic bottle of the Bottle Buddy dog toy can be replaced. It’s another way to recycle!
The Bottle Buddy dog toy was a great investment. You can get one at our Amazon.com a-Store, Indestructible Dog Toys, or make a homemade one. For a homemade one, take a plastic bottle and put it in an old sock. If your dog is a big chewer, however, I would recommend you not use an old sock, but make one with fleece material instead. It is super-easy to make, inexpensive, and tons of fun!
